In 2014, Aqua Expeditions expands into a second destination, the historically and culturally rich countries of Vietnam and Cambodia in Southeast Asia. From one great river in the Americas to another on the opposite side of the world, Aqua Expeditions sails into Asia on the Aqua Mekong, journeying up and down the iconic Mekong River. Here, between the thriving cultures of the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam and Cambodia’s ancient ruins and colonial charms, Aqua Expeditions delivers unprecedented international luxury and local intelligence to our discerning and adventurous guests.
For travelers already familiar with the alluring exoticism of Southeast Asia, a luxury cruise on the Mekong River offers a fresh perspective and deeper insights into the diverse history, esoteric cultures and remote nature of this flourishing region. Guests enjoying their first or 51st visit to Southeast Asia may wish to deepen their exploration of this fascinating region by traveling to the 300-plus ancient Khmer temples of Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the restful beaches of Sihanoukville, the equally languid hills around Dalat in the Vietnamese highlands, venturing into the modern melee of Saigon, also known as Ho Chi Minh City, climbing aboard a cyclo to explore the winding lanes of old Hanoi or donning a snorkelling mask to plunge into the rich marine waters off the legendary China Beach.
